    The Secretary of the Army has ordered military leaders to halt all briefings on extremist organizations that labeled Evangelical Christian groups as domestic hate groups. The shutdown comes just four days after I reported exclusively about a briefing at Mississippi’s Camp Shelby that labeled the American Family Association as a domestic hate group.

    “On several occasions over the past few months, media accounts have highlighted instances of Army instructors supplementing programs of instruction and including information or material that is inaccurate, objectionable and otherwise inconsistent with current Army policy,” Army Sec. John McHugh wrote to military leaders in a memorandum I obtained.

    McHugh “directed that Army leaders cease all briefings, command presentations or training on the subject of extremist organizations or activities until that program of instruction and training has been created and disseminated,” Army spokesman Col. David Patterson, Jr., tells me.

    To correct the problem, Army Sec. John McHugh has directed leaders to create a standardized program of instruction and training.

    The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty welcomed the news and said it was about time the Secretary of the Army intervened.

    “Men and women of faith – who have served the Army faithfully for centuries – have been likened to those who regularly threaten the peace and security of the United States,” said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of improper characterization.”

    Apparently, the "bad training" was not sactationed by the Army.

    Thats why we have to have so many rules because of a few bad apples.

    Of course on the other hand in my driving couses, I point out things that the Tng agy may not agree with!

    and in the "for what its worth dept" Sec McHugh was my Congressman (R-NY) prior to being appointed as SOTA

    So it was “bad training” and not sanctioned by the Army. I feel sorry for the soldiers – now because of these instances they are going to have to sit through hours of “corrective” training on AR 600-20. :laugh:
